"Social Media - Tools You Canât Afford Not to Use"
Itâs not enough to know how to grow produce, prepare delicious meals night after night and present them with aplomb, or catch fish and bring them briny fresh to market. Today farmers, chefs, restaurateurs, fishers, mixologists and other food service professionals are also expected to main- tain a visible and engaging presence on the internet. Beyond a website, social media sites like Facebook and twitter can provide valuable oppor- tunities to build stronger ties with customers, sell more product and serve more dinners. In this session we will look at the tools, how to use them, hear stories of successes and failures, and come away with new ideas about how to better use these new tools.
